The Fiat 500 Abarth is a fun ride. I personally had the chance to drive one on the race track when I also test drove the Fiat 500e (read that here). It was a great experience and helped me understand why there is such an active fan base of tuners and motorsports enthusiasts around this little car.
Jay Leno’s Garage this week featured Leno talking with Robert Tallini of Road Race Sports, showcasing some of their awesome Abarth customizations, including carbon fiber and roll cage bolt-ons that can be purchased and added by the DIY enthusiast. There were also great replacement-ready engine modifications for boosting engine output without altering the engine core.
Watch this cool video below as Jay not only showcases a couple of these awesome little 500’s with their mods, but takes one out for burnouts:
